Fans of Ayo Balogun, better known online as Wizkid, are celebrating their favorite musician’s latest accomplishment at the Brazilian music awards ceremony, BreakTudo 2023.

Wizkid defeated The Weeknd, Sam Smith, Post Malone, Bad Bunny, Harry Styles, Lil Nas X, and Myke Towers to win the title of Best International Music Act of 2023 on BreakTudo.

This honor comes just a few days after Wizkid was not nominated for any Record Academy Awards, or “Grammys.”


Following Wizkid’s 2023 BreakTudo Awards win for Best International Act, comments have been flooding in.

The musician has been persuaded by others to take comfort in this after not being selected for a Grammy.

Wizkid is not, however, the first international music award event winner of Best International Act.

At the 2017 MOBO Awards, the UK’s most prestigious black music awards show, Wiz defeated Drake, Jay-Z, Cardi B, Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, DJ Khaled, Migos, Solange, and Sza to win Best International Act.

See how netizens reacted to Wizkid’s win at the 2023 BreakTudo Awards:
